So I finally got the stuff I needed to make some of my own stitch markers. I ended up getting some lobster claw clasps and some toggles, figuring they are cheap enough to only use the loop end. The also won't snag and already have a little loop on them to attach a wire or head pin to. I pretty much just put some beads onto the head pins I bought and used a pair of jewelry pliers to attach to the toggles or lobster claw clasps. Way easy. Took an hour and a half or so to knock out about 25 individual ones. Some though are a set of four, lots are sets of two and five are loners. I didn't like them as much so they didn't get a partner. So here are my pics:
In other news, I ordered the Sims 2 game for my mac. I used to have the pc version, but I figured the mac version would run on my computer better than the pc. Anyway they didn't even have a mac version when I first bought the game. I traded my sister an iPod for the Sims 2 and the Open for Business expansion pack. I want the pets one too, and the nightlife, but only for the cars. I saw that there is a Seasons expansion pack so you can have winter and stuff. They probably won't have that for the mac yet though. Either way I can't wait to get them, I miss playing.
Still waiting on some yarn to get here. Knitpicks order should be here friday, well at the PO Box. My stuff from Yarn.com is coming UPS I think. Prollie take a while. Anyway when I get the knitpicks yarn I can dye some more! I bought some bulky weight to make felted bags, and some sock yarn that is new from them, also from the Bare line, but a silk wool blend! Very excited. I got some shawl yarn too, to try that out. Haven't made any shawls yet, but my sister would probably like one.
Ok well off to bed for me. I have a lovely dentist appt tomorrow, for one of my teeth that chipped big time...sigh.
